WHAT WE OFFER
The Help for Heroes Band of Sisters membership offers the opportunity to become part of a group that provides mutual support and a sense of belonging alongside others with shared experiences for both men and women over 18 years of age. Any sense of social isolation is reduced by accessing events and opportunities organised and run by our network of passionate Regional Coordinators who cover every part of the UK providing a listening ear, advice and some laughs in a safe, non-judgemental environment. It offers a gateway into the wider Recovery provision, and alongside that support there is the opportunity to make new friends as an individual or with your family.
Membership is free, confidential and comes with some amazing benefits and opportunities such as:
Mutual support and advice from others in a similar situation to yourself
A wide range of regular regional events and activities for you and the family: meals, visits, seasonal events, breakfast meetups, coffee mornings, with many of these taking place in the evenings or weekend
Band of Sisters Respite weekends
Complimentary tickets to sporting and musical events, family breaks and once in a lifetime opportunities, such as marching at The Cenotaph, attending a Buckingham Palace Garden Party or flying a British Airways simulator
Discounts with use of your Band of Brothers membership card
Access to further support from other Help for Heroes services
…and much more
All applicants will be required to provide confirmation of their loved one’s service and details of their injury and/or illness as part of the application process.
TESTIMONIALS FROM BAND OF SISTERS MEMBERS
"Each time my BoS has attended get-togethers she has had a great time and always enjoys them and is making new friendships along the way. Which is good for her, because between work and home she doesn't get to meet many people and have a different conversation to her everyday life”.
“Thank you very much for this opportunity, I haven’t been out to a restaurant in 7 years whilst caring for my husband, it was lovely to meet some new friends and have a good laugh! The best I’ve felt in years knowing I have people to turn to who actually understand!”
It’s just amazing that these tickets are available to BoB and BoS and the work you all do is second to none, I really can’t thank you all enough for the opportunities you have all given me and my fiancée since joining the fellowship”.
